Topic: Some improvement/feature requests gathered
Some requests I've seen in the past months, and some added, in one list for convenience/visibility
Mostly minor things which woulde make the user experience even better.
And I hope I'm not asking for things which are possible already
as mentioned in https://forum.rme-audio.de/viewtopic.php?id=34501: clickable page links in the pdf manual's table of contents, and optionally also when referring to other sections
minor, but could fix some grammar errors in the English manual: in English it's adjective (or other modifier) then noun so one uses 'Menu Structure Overview' not 'Overview Menu Structure' and 'ADI-2 User's Guide' not 'User's Guide ADI-2' and so on. Don't know if there are other occurrences, but these are the most eye-catching.
as mentioned in https://forum.rme-audio.de/viewtopic.php?id=33773: a preamp gain parameter which gets saved together with EQ, meant for matching the final level of different EQ presets. (alternative: a way to change the gain of all filters + B/T at once. E.g. after having pressed the Volume button to scroll through all EQ filters to modify them, an extra state which changes their gain)
(*)as mentioned in https://forum.rme-audio.de/viewtopic.ph … 12#p180912: an option for turning off and/or dimming the button's lights. Other related request is no red light in the power button. (*) dimming is not supported by the hardware, switching on/off should be possible ref. AutoDark as well
(*)logical next step after making B/T part of the EQ presets in previous firmware and displaying them in the bode plot (really great btw): complete this and add the B/T parameters as extra bands in the main EQ screen such that instead of 5 bands, the 7 bands parameters are all there and B1 becomes the bass low shelf parameters and B7 the Treble high shelf ones. Avoids having to go back and forth between the EQ and B/T menus. (*) announced for next upgrade
don't redraw the display when nothing changed. Now when reaching the end of a list in the menu and clicking/rotating further, the screen gets redrawn on each input, resulting in just flicker. This is a bit visually jarring but mostly confusing because the flicker typically serves as visual cue that something changed, but nothing actually did change.
option to enable loop around for all lists in the menu so that when the end of a list is reached it automatically goes to the beginning again with the next command. Makes the previous request pretty much obsolete. Faster to work with, and also more consistent because horizontally traversing the menu with encoder 2 already works like that (e.g. scroll through Clock/Phones/... in the Options), but others don't (main menu i.e. rotating encoder 1 for Options/Setups doesn't, but scrolling through I/O menu does loop around, and the vertical menus operated by pushing encoder 1/2 also don't whereas these have the most items so would be the best candidate for looping)
customizable crossfeed somewhat like the "Phonitor Matrix": customizable interaural time difference, level difference, amount of center, etc.
bigger values than 1.00 for "I/O Settings - Width"
volume display in dBu(@0dbFS) because the device knows which output is active
